American Football Hall of Fame inductees hail equal pay deal
Frisco, Texas. (AP) — Shannon Boxx, Christie Pearce Rampone and Linda Hamilton all celebrated this week’s historic equal pay deal with US Soccer as the three women were inducted into the National Soccer Hall of Fame on Saturday.
“As the women’s national team, we have always known that we have a bigger responsibility than just winning games. The new contract is a testament to the work players past and present have done off the pitch,” Boxx said. . “As a black athlete, I also felt the responsibility for every young black girl and boy who sits in the stands or watches television.”
